The theme for this week - besides the obvious one of HOLIDAZE - was playing pacemaker! On Wednesday, I paced Meagan and Jonah through a mini workout to get our legs moving. Then on Saturday, I decided to help pace Ayla for a 25 minute tempo she had on tap. Not having a plan is kinda fun because I can just jump in a do whatever I want. There's absolutely no pressure and since doing a workout is better than not doing one at all, I always win.
I celebrated my 32nd birthday with a group of 10 people at Baylands for a 90 minute run, with a later pickup point to maximize the attendance and spread the love. Overall, it was a very relaxing birthday, with very little fanfare, but lots of love. Just the way I like it, except maybe next year I'll be in a very warm place.
It was tons of fun doing a Christmas Eve long run with a group of EIGHT guys ranging in age from 16 to 62. Yes, you read that right. Basically, I run with some pretty badass dudes and I couldn't be prouder of them all!
